By 2023, the spaces around the portico and the basement of the Former Middle School in Petralia Sottana will undergo a transformation to accommodate new functions and services. A fablab, a kitchen lab, a multimedia lab, a coworking space, and a guesthouse for hosting resident innovators and artists will be established. The management of the space will be as agile and open as possible. To achieve this, a service needs to be designed that meets the needs of those who will manage it and its future users.
